Hello 2CARPRO Jack, No it wasn't overheating when the noise began and the oil stick shows full. Checked engine and the sound seems to be coming from 1 0f 2 valves. Have removed the valve cover & camshaft(the one closest to the front of the engine), have checked 4 of the valves & they are ok. The last 2 valves where the noise seems to be coming from I can't get to with the valve spring compressor I have
(the type that looks like a fancy wine cork remover) because the manifold is directly over them and there isn't enough space to put the compressor directly above the valve spring. Is there a particular model of valve spring compressor that can get to these 2 valves or is there another way to get to them?
